Movie Film Camera Service for ARRI and Moviecam Cameras – Updated

Information on Specific Film Camera (Movie Camera) Models

Here I have provided my advice on a variety of 16mm, Super-16 and 35mm cameras. This first page deals with all ARRI / Arriflex cameras, which are the models I am most familiar with and specialize in. I’ve concentrated on presenting information that is not available anywhere else, either on the web or in print.
Scroll down to links below for Aaton, Bolex, Cinema Products, Eclair, Logmar, Mitchell, Moviecam, and Panavision. Please understand that I cannot cover every camera ever made, in no way should the omission of any camera from this resource imply a negative opinion of that product.
Remember it is my opinion only, not that of CinemaTechnic. This information is not approved or endorsed by any manufacturer. Active links are colored blue and underlined, the rest will come later. Please check back as this area is frequently updated.

NOTE: Questions about ARRI film cameras made before 1975, or non-ARRI cameras (with the exception of Logmar and Moviecam) will not be answered.
